1. So we were up in the Platte basin in mountains ~9200-ish feet two weekends ago.

    The aspen had just leafed out but leaves weren’t near full size yet. The alder were only breaking bud in the best locations, maybe a handful of leaves. Some of the willow were leafing, some not. We kicked around a few places checking soil moisture. Dry, dry, dry, kinda some here, dry, dry, a little here, dry.

    We’re on voluntary water restrictions, and you can already see which houses are complying. What turf we haven’t taken out yet is crunchy in about a third of the area.

    Gonna be a looooooong summer.
